I am not a burger aficionado whatsoever, but I recently had a major craving for a substantial lunch on a Sunday and somehow we ended up at Boho, in the heart of Hollywood on Sunset, right between the Arclight cinemas and hip Amoeba records.
Various restaurants have come and gone in that conveniently located space, including Charcoal, which apparently was also operated by the current owner Adolfo Suaya.
BoHo, is a bohemian Hollywood gastropub with a menu that sits below the $20 mark and a lengthy premium beer list. They offer selections such as rare craft brews Weihenstephan and Speedway Stout, also Green Flash”™s Le Freak, The Lost Abbey”™s Avant Garde, Stone”™s Dry Hopped Old Guardian and Alesmith”™s Nautical Nut Brown Ale, all of which are local (San Diego) microbrews. There are an additional twenty or so craft beers available on tap from Belgium, Oregon, Maine, New York etc.
The expected gastropub fare is on the menu, such as loads of pizza options (the usual suspects, plus a kalbi one) and salads plus more exotic cuisine, such as charcuterie, osmosis-cured pastrami, eighteen-hour-roasted pulled pork, homemade wild boar patÃ© courtesy of Chef Andre Guerrero of Oinkster and Max fame.
They have one burger on their menu and it was truly fantastic.
The BoHo Burger features cambazola cheese, caramelized onion, tomato, pickles, thousand island, fries, aioli $14.00
I”™m pretty sure I said “˜hold the pickles.”™
Somehow, it was simply the perfect burger. Messy, yummy, tasty, not too greasy”¦
The aioli was killer – I took some home and smeared it on home-made crostini under some bruschetta as often as I could over the next couple of days.
One great thing was the delicious and healthy side salad that came with it, their Farro grain salad, made with parsley, cucumber, tomato, onion, olives, mint and lemon oil. Refreshing, hearty and healthy.
Weird thing is they list this burger on the site at three different prices:
Lunch – $10
Sunday Brunch & Dinner – $14
Social Hour – $8
I can”™t quite work it out, but I think it has something to do with whether the farro salad is included or not.
On their home page they are featuring their new “Social Hour” event:
Monday-Friday 4:00-7:00pm & Saturday 2:00-5:00pm
Late Night Social Hour
Friday & Saturday 11:00pm-1:00am (NB – kitchen closes at midnight)
